One month already?!

Actually, it's been a nearly a month and a half since Otto was born! And in a month, here's what has happened:
  • Andy had two weeks off of work when Otto was born and brought me breakfast in bed every single day.
  • Otto lost a bit of weight and we were worried when he kept it off for far too long. We had to figure things out with the feedings, but we're working it out and he's finally gaining weight. A few weeks ago, he was in the 10th percentile, but this week, he's in the 25th percentile, so we're making quick progress.
  • I've learned I can't get enough of his cute faces. He has so many different expressions already. The little round "0" mouth gets me every time.
  • One of my favorite things is watching Otto sleep. He is absolutely adorable.
  • I've learned to live with messes around the house for awhile because there are more important things in life. Namely, cuddling with Otto, feeding Otto, changing Otto, staring at his cute cute face, and cuddling some more.
  • We've learned that Otto will usually become more calm when Andy or I simply hold his hand.
  • Family camping with a five-week-old is kinda fun - everyone wanted turns holding Otto, so he was cuddled and spoiled the entire weekend. Love it! We brought the laundry basket with us, and some people thought we had brought our laundry with us until they realized it was Otto in there!


  1. He's so adorable. :) It's fun to watch them when they're growing and changing daily, I think. They do slow down after a while, but sometimes it's still all I can do to just stare at Rachel all day...and she's almost 2. Maybe I'm addicted?

    And good for you for taking him camping. I love that you keep him in a laundry basket! You're such a cute mom!

  2. Wow, I can't believe he's already over a month old! Where does the time go, hey? And it seems to go by faster and faster as the years go by. He's adorable! Congrats on the cute little fella!

  3. He is soooo adorable. I love his wee smiley face in the first picture. You guys have the cutest family ever...
